Jan. 18, 2009
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Kentucky didn't need another record performance from Jodie Meeks to take another SEC road win.
Meeks scored 22 points and Kentucky never trailed in coasting to a 68-45 win over Georgia on Sunday.
Meeks, from Norcross, Ga., didn't come close to matching his school-record 54 points in Kentucky's win at No. 24 Tennessee on Tuesday night. Meeks left the game with 5:14 remaining and the Wildcats leading 62-36.
Kentucky (14-4, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) has won three straight and 9 of 10 as it makes its bid to move into the Top 25 on Monday for the first time this season.
Georgia (9-9, 0-3 ) suffered its fifth straight loss. Terrance Woodbury led the Bulldogs with eight points while making only 4 of 14 shots from the field.
